Everton send message to Stubbs and Weir on Twitter after Scottish Cup final

Everton Goodison 2

Hibernian beat Rangers 3-2 on Saturday afternoon, and Everton offered congratulations and commiserations.

Everton have congratulated former defender Alan Stubbs on social networking site Twitter after Hibernian beat Rangers in the Scottish Cup final.

In a scintillating game of football, Hibernian ran out as 3-2 winners over Rangers, coming back from 2-1 down to secure a late win with captain David Gray’s header.

The win was Hibs' first Scottish Cup final success since 1902, when they beat Celtic, ending a 114-year wait for the club.

It was also Alan Stubbs’ first trophy as a manager, and his former club offered their congratulations on Twitter following the success.

The tweet was not entirely celebratory for the Toffees though, as they also offered their commiserations to another of their former stars, David Weir.

That former defender is currently Mark Warburton’s assistant manager at Rangers, and the Blues were keen to ensure there were no split loyalties by also offering their commiserations. 

It now remains to be seen how both clubs will be punished following the wild celebrations that followed the result.

Fans flooded onto the pitch at the death, with some even seen to be fighting with Rangers fans, and the Scottish FA will surely be harshly punishing both clubs as a result.
